First Responder Training

First responder training includes dispatcher training, specialized police response, mental health first aid, and training for EMTs and other first responders. An example is Crisis Intervention Training (CIT). CIT focuses on identifying signs of mental health disorders, de-escalating a situation that involves those signs, and connecting people to treatment. The importance of crisis training has increased in recent years as a way to avoid escalation into the use of force. All law enforcement officers should receive crisis and de-escalation training as well as regular updates on related best practices.
